Christian Kirk Warns Jaguars To Wake Up In Second Halves

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk says the team needs to stop falling into a ‘lull’ in second halves.

The Jaguars looked to have thrown away a lead against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night. Jacksonville led 17-6 at half time and 24 – 9 before the Saints rallied back to 24-24.

Christian Kirk finished the game with team highs of six receptions and 90 yards. He also produced the winning score with a 44-yard touchdown carry.

“We definitely got to be better in the second half,” Christian Kirk said. 

“Coming out and not going three-and-out and we hit that lull that we’ve been seeing that past couple of weeks, so I know that’s going to be a point of emphasis for us just finding ways to not find ourselves in these situations, especially when you had a lead like we did. 

“When you get into a lull like that you give good teams an opportunity to comeback. That stuff will get us beat ultimately, so I’m glad we were able to make a play when it mattered, but we definitely have some room for improvement.

“I don’t think I ran that fast since like college,” Kirk added. “That was some vintage stuff, I guess. I’m glad I was able to do it in that moment.”

“Just wanted to find a completion and get us going,” quarterback Trevor Lawrence said of his pass to Kirk. 

“Worst case, let’s get some points, let’s get a field goal. The game was tied at that point. And then when I threw it, I thought it was gonna be maybe a 10-yard gain. I knew he had 20 (Pete Werner) on the angle, but then he took it to the house. That was a great play by him to finish it and see that opportunity and go get it.”
